Sunrise on the Volcano

Sunrise on the volcano, Mount Teide, Tenerife

It’s freezing. The sun is slowly clearing the crater wall, turning the volcano an intense deep orange. The slopes look like they’re on fire, which they once were… a long time ago. This intensity won’t last long, but the volcano won’t lose it’s power to impress. In a short time the sun will fill the crater with warmth, even though the air temperature will only be around 2C. Less than forty kilometres away it will be 20C.

Such an incredible place.
